Gun Shops

I want to pick up a carry piece and I would like to look at a bunch of options before deciding. What gun store in the Metroplex has the biggest selection of handguns?

The wife and I went to Targetmaster in Garland a while back and the guy that helped us was very knowledgable and let her handle anything we wanted. She decided on a style/caliber and was able to shoot four different guns in 9mm right then and there to see which she liked better.

Cheaper than Dirt has a new name "Higher than Shit".

I'd recommend that you go to Cabela's, Bass Pro, Academy to look at guns. This way you can handle them and the sales staff doesn't really care how many guns they pull out for you.

Bachman Pawn has good prices, however their staff gets kinda pissy if you ask to see a bunch of guns.

i would avoid CTD.

check out bullet trap or dfw guns

rent a couple, typically you will know within 1 mag or within 1 box of ammo, if you like it or not
